If they had a CD, I'd buy it and so would my guests... We hired Eden Lane as a Quintet for our July 2017 wedding. Everything was organized through their vocalist Stephanie. She was extremely accommodating, professional and friendly. On the day of the wedding, the band arrived early to set up. All song requests were fulfilled masterfully and their own repertoire was impressive and extensive. The vocals were exceptional and the instrumental accompaniment was perfect. This band really has style. They look great and sound even better. All guests, from age 80 to 3 years old were entertained....most were dancing (the band actually can trick your guests into thinking they have rhythm). We received so many compliments on the band, my favorite being that "they don't overpower you with their volume like many bands do....they lure you in and make you want to listen to them because they're that good." During the few breaks they took, they had a great playlist playing (you were almost grateful for the few breaks b/c it gave you a minute to focus on your guests instead of the great music!) If you're looking for a jazz band and they're available, book them before someone else gets them for your date!

"Our best party decision was to book Eden Lane! Their sound was exciting and all our guests raved about their music! Even the venue managers praised their performance. Not only did they accommodate our requests, they even learned and performed a new song for us. We unreservedly recommend Eden Lane for your next event."

"Eden Lane Jazz Band was amazing! Stephanie and the boys were a perfect touch for our 250 guest " Kiss of Summer" yearly cocktail party. We were so luck to find them and look forward to having them back next year."
-Melissa P. (Summer party)
"Amazing!! We hired Eden Lane to play our outdoor cocktail hour. They added such class to the beginning of our reception! I personally did not get much of a chance to listen to them play, but I heard over and over again by guests that they were wonderful !! The band was so talented and kind-- I would recommend them to anyone! My only regret is not hiring them to play for longer :) THANK YOU!!"

Eden Lane's Stephanie and Dylan made our wedding everything we wanted it to be. We had our reception at a bbq restaurant in Astoria, so we were looking for relaxed, fun jazz/bluegrass/New Orleans style music for our chill out and dance reception. Stephanie and Dylan were extremely prompt in communicating with us, they were open to doing covers of some of our favorite songs, and they showed up on time with their equipment all ready to go. They even met in secret with my husband to rehearse a song and he sung it to me with Eden Lane at the reception! I would highly recommend this talented and professional duo for cocktail hours, before-ceremony music, receptions, or wherever you want to have a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

"Awesome! So easy to work with and they were perfect for our cocktail hour. I can't wait to see them play again!"
-Benjamin S. (Wedding)
"The most charming jazz voice you will experience. I heard (Eden Lane) at Caffe Vivaldi in West Village for the first time last summer... I wanted to stay there all night and listen to Ms.Layton sing with her band. When we needed jazz for a fundraiser theater production by an organization that works for ending violence against women and girls, she was the first person that came to our mind.
-Emir G. (Fundraiser)
"Amazing. They sounded so good and they were so pleasant to work with :) They were the band I picked for my vintage themed wedding and it just went perfectly together. Super thankful to you and your band. Thank you so so much !!!
-Maridel V. (Wedding)
"The event was a complete success and our group fell in love with the band. Not only were they top-notch performers (Steph has a voice of gold), but truly charming people. We asked to come back next year - that says it all!"
